Radionuklide in Fischen eingangs zur Barentssee : Radionuclides in fishes at the beginning of the Barents Sea

Updated 2000-10-19

Our projects will investigate the effects of radioactive wastes on marine ecosystems. Two marine ecosystems have been chosen for projects: 1) the dumping site for low level radioactive waste in the north-east Atlantic and 2) the western part of the Barents Sea. The data on the radioecology of North Sea and Baltic Sea obtained in our long-time monitoring programmes will serve as a basis for the interpretation of the project´s results.

This is a National Implementation Plan (NIP) project
